    Default Fourteen year old arrested for shoplifting

    The 14 year old son of a recently divorced mother of three was arrested for shoplifting. This kid has never been in trouble before. What are her best options.

    Thanks

    The child is charged as a juvenile? In what state?

    Thanks for responding

    Palm Beach, Florida.

    FYI, I got several calls from the mother who is now panicking because they still have not released the child.

    A few mins ago (8:35am), I called the Juvenile Assessment Center and was told she simply has to wait for them to tell her when to come get the child. Seems like it's taking a long time to process this child. He was arrested 5:00 pm yesterday (01/06/07)

    My understanding is that it can take a long time if the person has outstanding warrants, prior arrests or is a known delinquent. According to the mother, this child is none of the above. He is a honor student and never been in trouble before.

    It may take additional time to get somebody before a court over a weekend. He had the unfortunate timing of being picked up on a Saturday, at what would have been normal "close of business" time for a weekeday.

    Is there any reason child was not cited and released to a parent or guardian? Holding a child is not normal procedure. I suspect there is more to this than you are being told

    I'm with you Panther once they have all the info for the court they usually cut them loose to the parents.
